Our documentation services heavily rely on our key quality of unique and human-centered storytelling. Distory goes beyond the how, why, where and who of basic narration. We dig deeper to understand the true value of our client’s project to the beneficiaries. We take time to go to the field and gather the most unique impact success stories. This helps clients truly understand how their projects is received by their host community, to know what works and what doesn’t work.

Our history within the communication space has over the years opened us up to the internal communication processes of both local and international companies. This experience has taught us that the impact of external communication between a company and its external audience is only as good as its internal communication process.
In this way, Distory has also opened up internal channels of communication for companies through the creation and management of newsletters and blogs that will have staff communicate amongst themselves. The content of these newsletters is varied but geared towards giving a sneak peek of who employees are at work and outside work. Effective newsletters foster bonds between family members and are a key source of internal pride.
